ReWaved LLC was born because of our passion for the environment. Earth is the top priority for all of our decisions. We only work with other businesses that have a clear dedication to sustainability. The owner, Mariah, hand picks items from local artists, small businesses, and other eco-companies who have wholesale options. You can confidently purchase items that you can feel good about!
Greenwashing is something to be aware of while looking for eco-friendly items. Many companies take advantage by saying something is eco-friendly, even when it is not. If it meets minimal requirements, which vary by location, they consider it a "green product". You can avoid this by looking into the companies you buy from!
Luckily for you, we already have done this. We dig deep, so you don't have to! Now you can easily shop with confidence knowing that you are making a purchase that will protect the planet. Most items are made with recycled materials. Some are made with sustainable resources and are meant to be reused to eliminate waste. Others are made with FSC certified materials. FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certification ensures that products come from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits.5
Did you know?
- The entire life cycle of bottled water uses fossil fuels, contributes to global warming, and causes pollution.
- More than 17 million barrels of oil are required to produce enough plastic water bottles to meet America’s annual demand for bottled water.1
- According to the Container Recycling Institute, 86 percent of plastic water bottles used in the United States become garbage or litter.1
- Plastic waste washes into the ocean and kills 1.1 million marine creatures each year.2
- At least 8 million tons of plastic enter the oceans each year. That’s similar to emptying a garbage truck of plastic into an ocean every minute.3
- Plastic pollution is one of the most serious threats to the ocean. Plastic does not degrade; instead, it breaks down into progressively smaller pieces, known as microplastic (smaller than 5 mm) by sun exposure and wave action. Then, it can find its way into the food chain but never disappears.3
- There is more microplastic in the ocean than there are stars in the Milky Way.3
- The industrial activities that our modern civilization depends upon have raised atmospheric carbon dioxide levels from 280 parts per million to 414 parts per million in the last 150 years.4
